The Carter is open today, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Eleanore Mikus translated her signature style of painting into the medium of printmaking. Meditations draws from the Carter’s deep collection of works on paper, which includes more than 2,500 Tamarind prints from the 1960s, including these rarely seen works Mikus created in 1968.
Commissioned for the Carter, this large-scale, site-specific installation looks like frozen, Technicolor vapor. Created out of more than eighty miles of multicolored thread, Plexus no. 34 draws attention to the majestic architecture and natural light of the museum’s Atrium.
When you enter the museum, take a moment to marvel at James Surls’ otherworldly sculpture Seven and Seven Flower, a complex portrait of family, land, and self.
The Carter houses one of the great collections of American art, from historical landscapes captured on canvas to city streets seen through the lens of a camera. We’re regularly changing out these works, so each time you visit, you know you’ll encounter something you haven’t seen before.
